Why is it on this day of all days
That folks scatter from family gatherings to join the fray?
What is so special about standing in line?
Just to get something supposedly on sale (so it was said online)?
Is it really worth the fight? Is it worth it starting at midnight?
A percentage saved, a dollar burned…what lasting memories have really been earned?
Forget the malls where I’d feel small.
I’ll stay at home with my family and friends – the best gift of all.
